I bring a broad, varied background to my clients’ business affairs. I graduated from the University of British Columbia law school in 1987, started articles in 1987, and was called to the Bar in British Columbia in 1988. I articled and practised with a mid-size downtown Vancouver law firm in the early stages of my career, practising in the areas of public securities, corporate, commercial, real estate, commercial litigation, computer, immigration, and intellectual property law. From late 1989 to 1991, I lived in Hong Kong working with an international business group involved in various commercial ventures and transactions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Canada, and the United States.
In 1992, I established a practice in Vancouver as an independent business lawyer. Since 1994, I joined with other colleagues to establish a focused business boutique law firm under the name Kerr Redekop Leinburd & Boswell, recently changed to Kerr Redekop Leinburd.
I graduated with a B.A. (English) from the University of Manitoba in 1978, studied in the Masters of Communications Program at Boston University in 1980, and obtained my law degree from the University of British Columbia in 1987. I have travelled extensively throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Central America, and Asia.
I have served on the Vancouver Talmud Torah Association board of directors since 2007 having a passion for working to improve the quality of childrens’ education in our community.
